F3F-2 make with a nail file and Xacto knife!
Posted by bartenational on Thursday, September 28, 2017 8:51 AM

I have been working on biulding all of the Grumman Carrier fighters in 1/48 scale and thought for the F3F-2 I would try making a scratch built solid version. 

So I bought the plans from aeroplans.com and printed them out at 1/48 scale. 

To make it harder than plastic I made this at work while waiting for files to transfer, waiting for feedback and etc. 

So like 5 minutes a day over a 2 month period. Unperceptable amount of progress, but I am here everyday so I thought I would see what I could do. 

I have a complete model biulding supply at home I could have used, but again I needed a challenge. 

So attached is a youtube video slide show showing the process. I took as many pictures as possible.

for anyone who is interested,

 

here is a link to see all the carrier based aircraft by grumman in 1/48th scale I have built so far. 

I know they are "rough" and not perfect. but I am trying to keep it fun
